LucasArts celebrates the release of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 with an awesome cake

Since it’s a casual Saturday with nothing else going on, I thought that this was worth sharing with y’all especially in the wake of its impending release.  With the development on Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 being done and the game set to drop on retail shelves on Tuesday, the fine folks at LucasArts decided to have a party.  Even though their numbers may be few, it’s always nice to cap off the end of a project with a celebration and we all know that any celebration needs cake.
So with that being said, the LucasArts team probably got the coolest gaming/geek centric cake ever made: a crispy Stormtrooper.  A riff on how TFU2 hero Starkiller can turn Stormtrooper’s into nothing but ash, the cake is huge as hell and if I must say despite its somewhat gory influence, it looks quite delicious.  Awesome Star Wars cake complete with ash riddled Stormtrooper and ashy flakes of goodness = complete win.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 will be available next Tuesday and if you want your very own Stormtrooper cake I suggest you find your local specialty bakery or start brushing up on your baking skills.

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
